Work-In List Closed for Remainder of 2018

July 18th, 2018

Thanks to everyone who continues to have us process their fiber … we appreciate it. As you know, we try to accommodate as many customer orders as possible by not only utilizing our reservation system but by maintaining a work-in list for certain types of jobs (wash-pick-card). Our work-in list is now quite long and as a result we are temporarily halting the acceptance of any additional work-in jobs for the remainder of 2018. If it looks like we are getting thru that list faster than anticipated, we will re-open it as soon as possible. Thank you!

The Equipment is Here!

April 29th, 2012

On April 25 the Belfast Mini Mill equipment arrived!  The next day was spent setting up the equipment and then training began.  How nice that VFM&S has hired 3 great employees and has 600+ lbs of alpaca, wool and mohair to train and practice with.  You can view photos of the mill installation on Facebook at Vermont Fiber Mill, including the photo of our first yarn!
